Read it as a child in Sri Lanka! Bought a newer edition of ft Palgrave’s Golden treasury, & had to look for this online..should have made it into the treasury after 80 years...anyway, Robin Hood was a universal favourite..

My favourite poem of all time. Takes me back to our verse speaking with our teacher, Miss Hannay, at Napier Intermediate in 1937. Lovely language and beautifully written

I remember this poem from my Junior school days, although as a 10 year old there must have been much that passed me by! I love it now for its rhythm and its echoes of my Robin Hood country childhood.
